MTI sex scandal and more in this week’s Air Force Times


Two female airmen who say they were sexually assaulted by their military training instructors are just the latest alleged victims in a widening sex scandal at basic training  at Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland .

An investigation is looking into four military training instructors and nearly two dozen alleged victims, but those numbers could increase.

Meanwhile, the commander at Cannon Air Force Base, N.M., has restricted the wear of flight suits in the wake of a controversial letter published in Air Force Times by a pilot, who argued that pilots are entitled to wear flight suits.

Several Air Force Times readers have weighed in on the issue, claiming they feel the pilot’s letter was arrogant.

And Vietnam is allowing the United States to search for the remains of three airmen whose planes crashed during the war.

Specialists with the U.S. Joint POW/MIA Accounting Command Detachment 2 found a crash site in 2008 where remains of two of the airmen are located, but it had been deemed off limits by the Vietnamese government until now.
